The new map is beautiful, and useful, but as far as I can tell, its locations are not very precise....

E.g. I know that sflan39's location as it appears on the new map is actually off by about 5 blocks.

It wouldn't be too hard for someone to add the precise coordinates of sflan19 to the line of sight map, if they had them. Anybody have these coordinates?

Line of sight map:

sflan19 is at California and 32nd Ave.

We have the coordinates for most SFLan nodes, however the map is not anchored right. I gonna collect some GPS coordinates in the next couple of days. With that I should be able to calculate the map anchors more precisely.

Yea, that's why I couldn't get a signal from 27th and Clement. I might have better luck with an outdoor antenna.
